High growth in cannabis shops [NL]
    #3782142 - 02/15/05 05:20 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

High growth in cannabis shops
14 February 2005
www.expatica.com

A report published in Rotterdam-based daily newspaper the Algemeen Dagblad claims the number of so-called "growshops" - which sell equipment for large-scale cannabis cultivation - has tripled in the past five years from around 100 to 325. The newspaper says many people have turned to cannabis growing as a result of the economic slump, Radio Netherlands reported.

Large-scale marijuana crops are illegal in the Netherlands, but the shops selling the necessary equipment are tolerated. There is now feeling in political circles that steps should be taken against the growshops, the newspaper reported.

They should stop trying to stop it, and start trying to help it.

Better yet they should just leave it be.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S.

Did you know that when the police roll up a MJ growing operation they auction off the equipment after the case?
My country does some silly shit. But at least all drug use is allowed.
